I just discovered Grumbacher Max Watermixable oils (I've been using Winsor and Newton Artisan WMOs). I'm considering changing over because Grumbacher uses alkali oil (dry faster). I have an art crafts who in October and I'm trying to do as many paintings as possible between now and then. I have 30 right now ranging from "16x20, 18x24, 28x30".
Grumbacher has alizarin Crimson but it's not permanent. I saw that they had Quinacridone Red, Ultramarine Red and Grumbacher Red. Based looking online they look similar to Permanent Alizarin Crimson from W&N. Any thoughts or advise?
I use the Essential Palette in everything and rarely use black.
